: yes, it was. check four. colin powell rush limbaugh soap opera continues. as we pointed out last week general powell does not appear on fox news, preferring cnn. they almost always ask him about limbaugh. >> mr. limbaugh is entitled to his point of view. that's what makes this country great. is he free to criticize me all he wishes to. >> of course. >> because i can handle his criticism. the problem having with the party right now is when he says things that i consider to be completely outrageous and i respond to it i would like to see other members of the party do likewise. but they don't. >> do you think they are afraid to take him on? >> i know a number of instances where sitting members in congress or elsewhere in positions of responsibility of the party made like criticism of this -- of are you sure and within 24 hours they were backing away. >> why? >> because there is a strong base of support for mr. limbaugh. bill: check 5. as we predicted, the octomom naudia suleman has secured a reality program. the european company will feature her and her 14 children. filming is expected t
angry mobs. >> reporter: some on display get stoked by the provocative megaphones of rush limbaugh who went so far as accusing democrats of wanting to soernlize medicine of nazi germany. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: to encourage attend, conservative organizers acknowledge they sent e-mail alerts to members but argue the anger is real. >> i think that the politicians should be careful about so easily dismissing this many people showing up and participating in the process. >> reporter: virginia democrat jim moran expects to get an earful. >> funny to be opposed. i don't think it's fine to come in with the objective of disrupting the town hall meetings. >> reporter: for "today," kelly o'donnell, nbc news, washington. >>> for more on the political impact of all of this let's turn to john horowitz, chief washington kornt for cnbc. john, good morning. >> hey, jenna. >> with all the shoving and yells at all the town halls it's hard to get a sense of which side is being heard. how big of an impact will this have on congress when they return
up and saying no. stop the threats. stop calling people out. rush limbaugh -- rush limbaugh -- >> compared them to the republican fringe vote. >> he is the leader of the republican leader. >> rush is a wonderful conservative voice on the radio. but he's not the leader. >> glenn beck called our president a racist. >> he's a wonderful voice on the radio. he's not the republican party. they're marginalizing these folks at these events saying they're fringe, when there are literally house to and thousands of people who have never been active in politics before who are coming out and exercising their free speech and want to have this discussion in congress. when you marginalize them, that does backfire. >> these fringe koo conversations have marginalized themselves because they don't stand up to them. to stand up to glenn beck, to stand up to the guy who brought a gun to the rally in new hampshire. the man brought a loaded gun. >> people are not afraid to stand up, i think we're seeing that at these town hall meetings. they're eager and energized to talk to members of congress to
megaphones out there you have rush limbaugh saying these crazy things like the obama health care symbol looks like a nazi symbol and encouraging further elements of the fringe from believing and stoking crazy rumors. that's a hard thing for any white house to counteract. they've been aggressive about. they are putting out web videos and they have an interactive process in which they ask supporters to let them know about crazy talk that's out there so that they can rebut it. that's not easy. we have a culture as you know 24/7 news through social networks, through cable, through the internet and it's hard for political leaders to try to counter and stay ahead of that. >> there's no control. john harwood, always good to see you, my friend. thank you so much. >>> sarah palin is calling the health care plan evil. she posted her thoughts on her facebook page on friday. she says the america i know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with down syndrome will stand in front of the death panel so bureaucrats can decide based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in socie
limbaugh. this guy in miami beach is blaming president obama for the state of his job? he should be blaming bush. bush was in office eight years. z no are a result much 12 years of republicans taking jobs to other countries. >> you talked about folks who have stopped looking for jobs. >> out sources has continued over the years. there's also jobs that are in sourced there is a little bit of a balance. in terms of the stats. you are counted as unemployed if you are actively looking. if you've stopped looking, then you become the discouraged worker and you drop off the rolls. i think it is best to look at the general trend on the unemployment rate. we are seeing some of the worst unemployment we've had since the depression. host: in the hartford current, they have a map of the u.s. this is not seasonally adjusted. the states in white have unemployment rate below 8%. in light orange social security 8-10%. the states in dark orange, the unemployment rate is above 15%. can you explain why it seems more people are out of work along the coasts? >> part has to do with the real estate bubble we had.
it no better than rush limbaugh with all of this nonsense. that's just hogwash. >> governor -- >> all the republicans have made this stuff up, week after week you make this up. it's nonsense. >> governor -- >> i can explain it to you, if you would like to. >> i can explain it to you, but you won't listen. >> because there's nothing -- you are making stuff up. >> you're making it up. it's a bad product. you've got a bad product. >> this bill works and you guys are -- >> you're attacking everybody. >> you guys are in the insurance industry. that's the problem. >> the republicans are supporting the insurance industry. democrats are trying to support the american people. that's how how it is. >> the house bill will get a lot of heat because it's on paper. people can point to it. that's not going to become law. so why hasn't the president come out, will he eventually say, look, when this goes to committee, to conference, when it's put together by the house and senate, this is central, this will become law in my own personal view. why hasn't he done that? >> i think he is doing that. >> cle
side like rush limbaugh, god, and the facts, but -- but even with all that, how do you see the -- the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, nonpolitically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and, like, showmanship up against us where they twist our words and just sell lies all day that we can hardly combat? >> well, let me say, first of all, that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan and then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of 1980, and then i served with him for eight years in the congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue that we had a harder time because we didn't have limbaugh, we didn't have fox news, we didn't have hannity, we didn't have the internet and so there was actually probably a greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "the new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if yo
. it was included in the bill beez these two wanted it. then thed are cal right, sarah palin, rush limbaugh, others, even charles grassley, says we're pulling the plug on grandma and calling it a death panel? it was a republican idea. >> and the congressman distanced himself from that whole idea, but what does the president need to do? i mean, is there one thing that he could offer here that the republicans would sign on board? >> thank you. let me give you two. talking about equalizing the tax treatment between people that buy their insurance directly from an insurer and people that get insurance directly from their employers. that's a reasonable position that the president should be willing to talk about, but he criticized john mccain in the presidential election and the unions are against it so he won't talk about it. medical malpractice reform is another commonsense solution. i would say to the president you have an opportunity to get something bipartisan here but you've got to walk away from the left side of your party. he's never been willing to do that. >> paul, i want to show you this nbc n
to their leader, drug-addicted rush limbaugh. i'm very concerned hearding they show up at the meetings with ak-47s because that's quote unquote is their right. they want this president not only hurt, but gone. if you know what gone means, you get my drift. because they are never going to give him any leeway. the republicans that call before me, there are very few and far between. as far as joe that georgia, he calls all the time. he's one of the radicals. why are they taking -- what they they lost with him in the white house? please have them call in and tell me. >> >> host: molly, hold on. the headline white house backs right to arms outside obama events. >> caller: but did they do it before inform this is a side to president obama. they want to intimidate him. it's a prop for that. and i heard that they take these guns. : it is in them and giving a sign, we are in power and we got the guns and i tell you if they don't get a handle on the radical right wing with this bitch real hatred of our president of the united states -- vitriolic hatred. host: is a bipartisan health bill and poor? donnell on
stupid. we can talk with the other fat one, that rush limbaugh, and not to mention mostly all the people that get up there and carry on are from the south. they are ignorant, they have no teeth, they have no brains, and i'm so ashamed of them. i am so glad i do not live in the south. thank you. host: barbara? barbara's gone. in "the washington post" this morning grassley is the talk of town halls. this is by perry bacon who writes about the town hall meetings of senator charles grassley, the ranking member in the senate finance committee. "conservative activists mobilized early sending urgent e-mail alerts asking republicans to show up at meetings." some iowans, explained someone who strongly opposes the health care reform effort wonders if grassley is wandering off the reservation. curt, what's on your mind this morning? caller: thank god for c-span. i want to talk about the health care system. i am an immigrant. and since i come here, my wife have insurance. i don't use it, because i don't normally get sick, but she uses it a lot. man, i'm telling you, the bills are -- they are so craz
gates well enough to know -- the most surprising thing about hearing rush limbaugh and these guys go off, want to tell them president obama and professor gates might no way more than the most of the rest of us. [laughter] we are giving you the best we have. this is the very best we have, intellectually personally, and in their sense of wanting to bridge socially and personally and intellectually. if you reject them, if they are labeled as militant or radical or racist, there is no hope. >> what i know is i knew my role on the streets of detroit. i know while i met the crib, yes sir, no sir, at that is what you think, yes sir. intellectually, i am raising a finger at him, but i understand you have to show your young kids not to pave the way professor gates did. you don't have a harvard pedigree and you don't have barack obama as your friend. you be quiet and silent until you can assert your man had later on. not testosterone, black survival. that's what the real deal is. [applause] i do think we are trying to look at a macro situation through a micro lens. you talk about somebody's mamma,
has been showcased in a book touted by rush limbaugh himself entitled great american conservative women. it is fitting that her work should be included in such a collection of literature as this text given that she is an unyielding supporter of young women
him a break. they really should give him a break. people like rush limbaugh and i cat think of the name on fox news, he really irritates me. i mean, barack obama cannot do anything, he can't even -- with all the people sittingomething critical. but i want to ask a question, sir. do you think he's going to become a great president? >> guest: it is too early to say. how can you do that? or could be a great president was something that he thought about at the earliest stages of trying to decide whether or not to run. and again this is pretty much the second chapter of the book where, you know, he and his friends are discussing what makes a good president, in his opinion the sort of mixture of the person and the time and that is why he thought ronald reagan was probably the great president and even though he opposed pretty much every single one of his policies the character, the leadership of the individual with the time and the country boss ready for that kind of change. now he went public with that approach and that observation around the time of the nevada caucus and the sout
, they will start to win. do not respond to their absurd attacks. the key is not to fall for it. rush limbaugh said if conservatives spent their time responding to the never-ending series of baseless attacks from liberals, they would be lost to the cause of truth and freedom forever. awesome point. book, liberals are angry and they don't take the time to equip themselves with the facts. so look at that as a great opening for yourself. do what ann coulter does. when they call them names, laugh. just laugh. that is exactly what ann coulter does. [applause] >> they have no idea what to do with that. when you start laughing, they are completely at a loss. it is laughable what they are doing. and then just tell them it's the oldest trick in the book and it will not work for me. it is one thing for me to be up here today telling you to laugh in the face of liberals, and in your classes and to laugh in the face of your professors. i know it is another thing entirely to be able to actually do it, to laugh at those who call you names. it is tough to dig deep, to believe in something bigger than yourself, to
to contend with. first, rush limbaugh happily admitted he wants our president to fail. then a republican senator openly admitted he wants to block the health insurance reform for millions as a way to -- quote -- "break the president." another republican senator admitted that at least half of the other side's opposition to reform is purely political. and an influential commentator advised the republicans to avoid consensus at all costs and instead go for the kill. these partisan tactics have consequences. these consequences will be evident when every kitchen table, every family budget and every american's peace of mind. and they're watching. a poll released last week found that a majority of americans credit president obama for putting partisanship aside, trying to work with congressional republicans to get this done for the good of the country. republicans, they found, weren't returning the favor. others may be focused on delaying health insurance reform, but we will make sure we won't let that hafplt we already have seen what happens when we do nothing. the costs of sitting this one out
